    Egyptian State Information Service ^ | Friday, 21 February 2014 - 11:49 PM Cairo | None stated
    US Senator Tim Kaine, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee, said he expects the coming presidential elections in Egypt to be impartial. During a meeting with a number of journalists at a Cairo hotel Thursday, Kaine denied that the US let down Egypt in its war against terrorism, highlighting that the relations between the two countries are strong and that Washington will support Egypt in the coming period. Responding to a question on the US stance regarding the candidature of Defense Minister Field Marshal Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi in the presidential polls, Kaine said that there is no problem at all...

    Two members of the Senate are pressing for significant changes to how presidents consult with Congress on sending the military into war. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Tim Kaine, D-Va., unveiled legislation on Thursday that would repeal the 1973 War Powers Resolution, often ignored by presidents of both parties, and replace it with a new law that requires greater consultation and a congressional vote within 30 days on any significant armed conflict. …

    U.S. Congress Files DOMA Brief Senators Mark Warner & Tim Kaine Last Friday, 212 members of Congress signed an amicus brief asking the Supreme Court to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act. The brief also includes 25 members who voted for DOMA back in 1996. “Some States still criminalized same-sex relationships, inviting further discrimination against gay men and lesbians in employment, family relations, and housing,” the brief says. “…As a result, when the question of same-sex marriage arose in 1996, reflexive beliefs and discomfort about same-sex relationships dominated congressional debate.

    WASHINGTON - Opposing sides are finding common ground as lawmakers tackle the issue of gun control, mental health and school safety. Sen. Tim Kaine, a former Virginia governor and democrat, says there is enough agreement to take the first steps toward solutions that would make the U.S. a little safer in the wake of the school shooting in Newtown, Conn. "We need to make improvements to our mental health system," Kaine says. "We do need to talk about school security and figure out better security protocols, but we also can find common-sense rules about gun use that can help us...

    Yesterday, Democrat Tim Kaine asked his Republican opponent to join him in taking a “balanced” approach to avoiding the looming sequestration cuts. Unfortunately Tim Kaine seems to suffer amnesia on his attempt to implement the same kind of “balanced” approach while he served as Virginia’s Governor. Such an approach included billions of dollars in new and higher taxes. Kaine called on George Allen to “set aside his Pledge,” and work for a “responsible path forward.” Translated, what Tim Kaine means is that he’s asking Allen to break his written commitment to Virginia taxpayers and join with him in an approach...

    PJ Tatler ^ | May 23, 2012 | Bryan Preston
    The Democrats have picked a curious and potentially very costly fight this election year. President Obama came into office promising Big Labor that its agenda is his agenda, and he wasted little time using the National Labor Relations Board to make good on that promise. That board is supposed to be a fair arbiter of labor disputes, but the president packed the NLRB with Big Labor activists, and the board tried to ram a union-favoring “ambush rule” through to implementation. The rule would slash the amount of time employees and employers have to consider unionization in non-unionized work places from...

A good first step would be to eliminate the money taxpayers spend on subsidies to major oil companies. We're going to have to make a lot of tough choices, but this one is easy. I strongly support putting an end to federal tax giveaways for big oil companies because they aren't necessary and they'll cost taxpayers over $21 billion over the next decade. Unfortunately, even as gas prices rise and oil profits grow even more, George Allen and Jamie Radtke prefer the...

In Webb's place, the Democrats decided to run former Governor Tim Kaine. Kaine was also the chair of the DNC. Allen has also tossed his hat into the ring-- although he may also have...

Gun-control advocates decried the move, saying the decision could hurt the state's tourism business, while gun-rights advocates said the directive was overdue. It also was not unexpected, as McDonnell (R) had opined as attorney general three years ago that the Department of Conservation and Recreation's guns-in-parks ban exceeded its authority when it enacted the rule under then-Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D).

    The landscaper who claims Kyron Horman's stepmother offered him "a large sum of money" to kill her husband recently went back to Terri Moulton Horman at the request of police, according to a local report. Wearing a body wire and accompanied by an undercover officer during a June 26 meeting, the landscaper told Horman he wanted $10,000 or he'd go to authorities with the alleged murder-for-hire plot, The Oregonian reports. Horman, the stepmother of missing Oregon boy Kyron Horman who has come under police scrutiny, cut off the conversation fairly quickly, sources tell the paper.

    Authorities in Multnomah County, Ore. say the last reported sighting of Kyron Horman was walking down the hall of Skyline Elementary School on June 4, 2010. Kyron and his stepmother, Terri Moulton Horman, had come to school that morning to attend a science fair. At around 8:45 a.m., Kyron left his stepmom and headed to class. However, cops say, the second grader never made it. When Kyron didn't show up at his school bus stop later that afternoon, his parents called the school. Kyron was nowhere to be found. Over the course of the next few days, air units, canine...

    PORTLAND, Ore. — Detectives investigating the disappearance of a 7-year-old Oregon boy two weeks ago put out a call Friday for information on the whereabouts that day of his stepmother — the last person to see him alive. Investigators refuse to say whether they have a suspect. Police passed out fliers Friday in hopes of jogging the memory of anybody who might have information on Kyron Horman's case, said Capt. Jason Gates of the Multnomah County sheriff's department. A questionnaire that accompanies the flier has gone to everybody who was at Skyline School on June 4, he said. The boy...

    Party chairman's optimistic after upstart candidates take primaries WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Democrats face a tough battle, but voters will ultimately reward President Barack Obama's party at the polls this election season, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee predicted Wednesday."Americans continue to be very anxious about the economy. Many continue to feel the bite of the deep recession from which are only beginning to emerge -- and they are holding incumbents of both parties accountable in a tough time," DNC chief Tim Kaine said in a speech at the National Press Club.

    No American Should Remain Silent The 9/11 mosque Dar Al Hijrah will hold its annual fundraising dinner on Saturday at the Fairview Park Marriott in Falls Church. Among the special guests are former Virginia Governor Tim Kaine, Congressman Gerry Connolly and Congressman Jim Moran. After receiving a briefing paper from the Center for Security Policy, the names of Senator James Webb and Virginia Delegate Kaye Kory have been removed from the dinner’s program. The Dar Al Hijrah mosque has been the focal point for many who participated in the cowardly attack on the Pentagon and in recent terrorist acts at...

    Democratic Party Selling T-Shirts Off Biden's "Big F***ing Deal" Comment Posted by Brian Montopoli Organizing for America, the Democratic National Committee organization dedicated to mobilizing millions of people who supported Barack Obama in the presidential election, has come up with what it hopes will be a big f***king fundraising success. OFA is selling t-shirts deeming health care reform a "BFD" -- a reference to an utterance by Vice President Biden to President Obama at the signing of the bill that passage is "a big f***ing deal." The t-shirts, which cost $25, includes the date the bill was signed (March 23rd),...

    Like so many “community” service groups the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center must hold annual fundraisers. Unlike other groups, this bunch has been linked to Islamist terrorism so it would seem inconceivable that two Virginia Democrat Congressmen, Jim Moran ( a man engulfed in scandal and domestic violence issues) and Gerry Connolly and the Democratic National Committee Chair Tim Kaine would be among the featured guests helping to fill the seats on April 3. The Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center which is in suburban Washington, is circulating a flyer with the names of these national Democrats as well as two Fairfax County...

    WASHINGTON (Associated Press) -- Tim Kaine spent President Barack Obama's first year in office pulling double duty as Virginia's governor and the Democratic National Committee chairman _ and weathering criticism that he was an ineffective, absent party leader. Now freed from the responsibilities of elected office and with the White House struggling to communicate with voters, Kaine has fully embraced his party-chief role as Democrats try to persuade a sour public to stick with them amid unrelenting joblessness and persistent Washington gridlock.

    Someone submit the Morning Joe java to Henry Waxman for analysis. There seems to be something in it causing top Dems to experience serious delusions . . . On today's show, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius claimed that the people of her home state of Kansas are "wildly supportive" of the substance of ObamaCare. Unfortunately, suggested Sebelius, they're just too ignorant to know what's in the blessed bill. Later, DNC Chairman Tim Kaine didn't deny that the Obama admin had engaged in two sleazy patronage deals, involving Joe Sestak and Scott Matheson. Instead, the DNC Chairman laughed off the cynical, and...
